lyrics

Some people work a lot for a little pay
Some people like to sleep all day
Some of them watch the TV
But all these people have someone to do these with
A hand to hold and a love to give
I’m not one of these
Seems to be there’s a different route for me
I don’t do lasting love you see
I play a different card

I’m moonlighting
Love’s not a full-time gig for me
I’ll go through all the motions
Then give them up to be alone

It’s easy for me to have confidence in this sort of thing
No love lost, just a little fling
Keep it under control
I won’t concern myself with old-fashioned notions
Fairy tales and magic potions
I want harsh reality
Someone told me, you can drown in the sea of love
I tried but when I looked above
Saw a blue moon lonely as me
And I’m still moonlighting
Love’s not a full-time gig for me
I’ll go through all the motions
Then give them up to be alone

Moonlighting, moonlighting

I’m a romance moonlighter
Taking temporary lovers
They have no hold on me
No sense of permanency
But it’s just a moonlight cover
Only you know why I bother
Been this way ever since the day you walked away from me
I keep thinking of that summer
I loved you but you found another
For me there could be so many others
But without you I’ll still be

Moonlighting, moonlighting, moonlighting
